Sounds an interesting concept by using Patreon
I have supported a couple of projects using this platform
And to not have commercial broadcasting restrictions may help in better content, more in depth and less waffle

It appears though that Phil Harding wont be in the new series, i think he has retired?
Not sure if Carenza will make an appearance either, i know she had some health issues that stopped her career for a while too

Always enjoyed watching the program, even if i disagreed sometimes with how things went

Hope this takes off for them and will be watching closely and following :thumbsup:

Cheers for the link fella :thumbsup:

Great news, thanks for alerting us, Paul.
Probably my favourite programme of all time.
Have watched numerous repeats to help with ID`s and just for enjoyment.
When they first started out, you could join the Time Team club, via Oracle ( remember that .
Somewhere at home, have the Time Team reports to several series that make interesting reading, although i only had a quick glance at them.
This has been good news, :thumbsup:
Dave.

I thought it as about time we had some good news as well as the great news about the various vaccines that are going to be rolled out.

We met up with all the Time Time members and some of the production crew during the tribute to Mick Aston on Lindisfarne.
There were some exciting ideas being sounded, especially with the new technologies available that cut production costs down and speed up the editing processes.
Unfortunately, the format will not feature the original cast as we know it as it was Mick Aston that was the key to the success of the program.
I'm sure that there may be the occaisional appearance of one or two of the originals.
There are many new and young archaeological faces that are very good at presenting and will bring with them new ideas and interesting facets to the mix.

Do they intend carrying out more digs? I ask because I got the impression they were just recycling old episodes with some additional background/behind the scenes content???

Getting back to the original show, I heard quite a few rumours that Tony Robinson was not universally popular with the rest of the cast, supposedly being a bit of a prima donna????

On the little video on youtube they mention that they are using "patreon" which basically is a platform where the public can support the venture for a monthly fee, and this will go towards producing some new digs
They also asked for people to contact with any land they wanted investigated
So, basically its like a crowd funding project, if enough get interested then they will produce new content for us, without standard broadcasting restrictions

Hope it pans out for them :thumbsup:

If they want a project, the village I grew up in has an ancient lost secret escape tunnel that leads from the church to neighbouring villages. I for one have always wanted to find it, but never have. I always wished that time team could come and help. Think of the finds that could be sitting in the tunnel waiting to be rediscovered!!?? 😲😲

I think you will find there are lots of similar stories about tunnels under Churches and the larger houses that date back to the 16th to 18th Century..

I grew up in Wrexham in North Wales and there was a similar story about tunnels under St Giles, the large parish of the town. I have no idea if they were true or not, but I think some certainly were....

We have some tunnels leading out from this house in our town

My sister has worked there for approx 25 years, and has said there are extensive cellars under the building with bricked off areas
We were a bit of a smuggling centre here in days gone by
Quite a feat of engineering though as our town, and even my house which is on the very outskirts are all built on sand

There’s a tunnel near here too, according to local legend. One from a 13th century moated house that goes under the moat and allowed people to escape the fortified house in times of siege or supplies to be smuggled in. Supposedly it was used in the civil war.

Maybe with this many tunnels around Time Team should be replaced by Tunnel Team? :lol: Being serious for a mo though that would make a superb series of programmes for someone, not Time Team but someone.

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
